meteorological organize and i a big change occurred in 1979. i remember this. >> tucker, do you remember this? >> absolutely. i was just a littlguy. at first, all the storm were named after women because traditionally, most meteorologys were probably males an they would name ships after women so they name the storms after women. and in the late 70s, there was the women's movement and they decided maybe they need to name it after men and women because it was sort of looking down. >> equal opportunity. >> i see tony over here biting his tongue. >> because to be honest, there was some sexist thinking. there were some who thought these storms are temperamental like a woman. we have a list of this year's storms. take a look. >> we are new claudette. we are three storms in. >> the next one is danny. the name repeat every six years. >> i was going to ask that. >> yes, they do. however, as i believe you all know this too, if there is a storm that is particularly deadly or costly,that name is retired and a new name is inserted. so we will not have another tropical storm or hurricane andrew, camille or
